FROM THE MOMENT BY: MICHELLE COLE
From the moment that I became a Mother, I vowed to teach her, guide her, and love her.
From the moment I held her in my arms, I knew I would meet death, before I let her meet harm.
From the moment I looked into her eyes, I beamed with pride, they looked just like mine.
From the moment she spoke her very first word, it was the most beautiful voice I had ever heard.
From the moment that she took her first step, overwhelmed with joy, I cheered and wept.
From the moment I saw her watching me, I led by example, by showing her, how she should be.
From the moment I saw her married, with children of her own, I couldn't believe it, where had all the years gone?
From the moment I saw that healthy lady, I thanked God that I raised, that healthy baby!
Dear Beautiful Mommie:
When I wrote this poem, more than 20 years ago, you were the inspiration for it. You were the best Mother on the planet! I miss you so much. I will miss you — every single day — for the rest of my days. I will always love you, Mommie. Always. You will live on in my heart. Forever.
